Located at the Peninsula campus (approximately 40 km southeast of Melbourne), the Bachelor of Physiotherapy (Honours) at Monash University gives you high-quality academic education, intensive training in relevant clinical environments, and the chance to study with expert physiotherapists and leading researchers.

You will acquire the knowledge and skills you need to practice as a physiotherapist, using exercise, movement analysis, manual therapy and specialist techniques to restore, improve and promote health.


The focus of the early part of the program is on the conditions for which people typically seek physiotherapy. You will study biomedical and behavioural sciences ranging over anatomy, biomechanics, kinesiology, pathology, pharmacology, physiology, psychology, radiology and sociology. In doing so, you’ll lay the foundations for physiotherapy practice and research, using a problem-based and patient-centred approach to learning.

In the later years, you will move to the clinical setting, where your knowledge and skills are put to practice in the delivery of physiotherapy services under the supervision of experienced physiotherapists. This clinical education may occur in a diversity of settings, including metropolitan and rural health services.

Your skills will be developed through small-group learning, with some time each semester spent working with students enrolled in other health-science courses (e.g., occupational therapy, nursing, paramedic practice, medical imaging, nutrition and dietetics, social work) enabling you to experience interdisciplinary service delivery and inter-professional education.
